TITLE
RESOLUTION CREATING TASK FORCE ON GOVERNMENTAL STRUCTURE

BODY
WHEREAS, there has been ongoing debate in Miami-Dade County regarding potential changes to the process whereby goods and services are procured; and
WHEREAS, the debate regarding potential changes to our procurement process should be conducted in public; and
WHEREAS, the Commission believes that the creation of a task force to thoroughly evaluate whether changes to our procurement process are necessary is in the best interest of the County,
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. Creation. There is hereby created the Miami-Dade County Task Force on Governmental Structure (hereinafter "Task Force").
Section 2. Membership. The Task Force shall consist of the Vice-Chairman of the County Commission, who shall be the Chair of the Task Force, and 3 additional County Commissioners selected by the Chairman of the County Commission. The Mayor shall, at his discretion, serve as the fifth voting member of the Task Force.
Section 3. Duties and functions. The Task Force shall:
a) Develop a set of criteria for identifying efficient and effective structures of local government in this country. Such criteria may include: bond ratings; efficiency awards or recognitions; success in obtaining state or federal funds; as well as other criteria deemed by the members to be objective measures of an efficient and effective local government;
b) The Task Force shall apply the criteria developed to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the various structures of governance of the major metropolitan areas of this country. This evaluation shall include local governments that vest procurement authority in elected officials, as well as those that vest such authority in appointed members of staff. The evaluation shall also include an analysis of jurisdictions that vest authority over air and seaports in elected officials, as well as in appointed officials;
c) The Task Force shall next review the Commission agendas over the past five years and analyze those instances where the County Commission has rejected the County Manager's recommendation on a procurement matter, and identify the number thereof in relation to the total number of such recommendations, the percentage that such instances comprise of the total number of and total dollar value of all procurement recommendations submitted by the County Manager to the Commission during such period of time. The data gathered as a result of the foregoing shall be compiled and disseminated to the public by the County Communications Department;
d) The Task Force shall conduct such public hearings as in the Task Force's opinion are sufficient to afford the members of the community the opportunity to provide their input. The Chair of the Task Force may, at his or her discretion, create a Citizens' Advisory Committee to assist the Task Force. The Chair of the Task Force shall appoint the members of the Citizens' Advisory Committee.
e) At the conclusion of the public hearing process, the Task Force shall prepare a written report for the County Commission's consideration that includes a summary of the Task Force's evaluation of the efficient and effective structures of local government studied and the opinions of constituents shared with the Task Force during the public hearing process. Such report shall be completed and submitted to the County Commission as soon as practicable, and in no event later than twelve months after the effective date of this resolution. Upon such submission, the Task Force shall be dissolved.
Section 4. Staff support. The County Manager and County Attorney shall provide staff support as needed to the Task Force.
